Art Gallery and Love Letters

My ethos is to create an artful narrative of your wedding with sensitive documentation.

I pride myself on having the minimum impact on your day, to get the shots without taking up your precious time.

I can only be part of 20 wedding stories each year, I wish I could do more but I feel this is the amount I need to do to stay fresh and to give each couple the attention that they deserve. I really do my homework on what you want from your photography. I will visit the venue before each wedding and have some shots in mind already before we start. I see very wedding as a creative collaboration. I fully encourage you have ideas about how the final images will look. I’m aware that most people are not comfortable with posing in front of a camera. I think the key to great images are working within your ‘comfortable zone’, often this will mean using more of the surrounding landscape as part of the image, after all that’s why you have specially chosen the venue . I’m really trying to create art, something you will want on your walls.


We’ve just been reminiscing about our amazing wedding at Crow Hill, now 1 whole year ago! Just wanted to thank you again for the way you managed to capture the spirit of the day, the happiness, anticipation and celebration we are still as in love with our stunning wedding photos as we were a year ago and were so grateful to you and your sublime talent!
All the best xx

We’ve had so many positive comments about how lovely and fun you were – one guest said “I’ve never known a wedding photographer to be so happy and friendly  -they’re usually surly beasts”! 😀

Amazing Tim, thank you so much for sharing our special day with us and capturing every special moment in such a fantastic way. I am so pleased you were a part of our special, amazing day (and part of our secret F1 theme too! ha ha). Thanks so much once again you are absolutely amazing and made us feel so relaxed all day so thank you. Love Caroline & Dave xxxxx

Tim  if this is just a teaser, we cannot wait for the rest! The first time I met you I knew you were the photographer I wanted to shoot my wedding someday! You are the most amazing people. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.

“I can’t thank you enough for our photos they’re amazing I love them all I have lost count of how many times I’ve been through them all ready I have done our house is going to be a bloody shrine to the wedding cause I just can’t choose a few of them I, Massive  thank you again for them all they are just amazing as are you guys for capturing the day for us “


WOW! These photos are INCREDIBLE! We are so excited to see the full array from the day now!

Thank you so much for photographing our wedding. It felt like we had two friends joining our celebration, and we really appreciated you coming over to Bakewell on different occasions to help with the prep.! Our families thought that you were both ace; you really ‘blended in’ and captured our nearest and dearest at their best: as themselves, naturally!

You had some brilliant ideas for different shots and clearly have a talent and artistic flair when it comes to photography. It’s clear that it’s more that just a job to you both.

Thanks again for these wonderful photos and also the blog. It’s a great little momento of the day from start to finish.


Tim photographed our wedding in May and he really captured the day. We chose Tim originally because we didn’t want ordinary, run of the mill wedding photography. We felt at ease with him as soon as we met and he couldn’t have been more on our wave length in terms of the type of photographs we wanted. On the day, we hardly knew he was there, but the photographs are ones which show that he very definitely was! They are close up, personal, funny, emotional and totally capture the essence of our very laid back wedding day. We spent some time alone with Tim in order to get some shots just of us and these have come out wonderfully – nothing staged, just us being a newly married couple. They are funny, quirky and romantic all at the same time. Perfect!
I couldn’t recommend Tim more. He is great company and easy to get on with. He chatted to our guests, who have all been very complimentary about him, and made sure everyone was included in the photographs he took, meaning we have a great range of images. He took on board what we wanted and then added his own style to give us photographic memories that we will treasure forever.Thanks Tim – we look forward to coming over to the studio soon to decide which photographs to put in the album.

We used Tim for our wedding in May 2018 and cannot recommend him enough. The service was perfect from start to finish. Tim could not do enough for us and with his laid back fun-loving personality he felt more of a guest than a stranger taking photographs. We felt completely comfortable – he was happy to take any specific shots we wanted but also happy to blend into the background allowing us to enjoy our day without feeling the pressure of a camera in our faces. Most importantly, the photos have the wow factor and we didn’t have to wait long to get them. We really are blown away by the photos – Tim is a super talented photographer and we are really thankful for all his hard work on our wedding day! Jodie and Gary
Thank you so much to Tim for capturing all the magical moments in our special day! We could keep looking through our photos over and over again! They are So natural and perfectly capture the vibes, in a unique way. We barely knew he was there! Thank you Tim. Emily & Jonny
My husband and I knew we wanted something a little different for our wedding photos, and when our venue (Upwaltham Barns) suggested Tim Simpson Photography and showed us their work we were blown away. After getting in contact with Tim and spending far too long chatting on the phone with him about ideas, I knew we needed to book him! Throughout the lead up to the wedding Tim worked with us to perfect our vision for the day and was on hand to answer any questions, particularly regarding the film cameras we were also wanting to use. On the day itself, Tim and his lovely wife Amanda were just incredible! They were both so friendly and really put us at ease. We had an absolute blast going off with them to take our couple photos and we could tell at the time that the photos we got back were going to be really special. We were not disappointed! Our photos really are beautiful… they are a perfect mixture of artful composition and candid shots and I really feel they capture the happiness and laughter of the day. We have had so many compliments from guests and I cannot wait to make them into an album! The whole experience was wonderful and my favourite part (aside of course from the beautiful photos themselves!) was getting to know a wonderfully kind couple who are so talented and passionate about what they do. Thanks so much guys!!
It was fantastic having Tim take photographs for our wedding this month. He was  highly professional but lots of fun too and completely put us at ease. We absolutely love our photographs and feel they captured us and our wedding perfectly. Thank you!!
